Today I am 38 weeks pregnant and have only 14 days until my due date (2 weeks!).
I was sick this morning for the first time in quite a while, I have run out of my reflux tablets and believe that this is why I was sick. Spencer has picked my repeat prescription up for me today so hopefully the sickness won’t stick around.
I didn’t realise just how swollen my fingers were until I attempted to take my wedding & engagement ring off this week, they would not budge! A lot of soap and cold water and I finally managed to take them off, that was at the beginning of the week and I still have a dent in my finger from where they were now. They will be staying off until after I have the baby, I don’t want to risk them needing to be cut off.
Rather excitingly last night I woke up with what I thought may have been contractions, it started with what felt like a burning ball in my back and then spread around to my tummy, I had a few of them in a row but they then stopped. I’m guessing it was maybe Braxton Hicks as it hasn’t come to anything. I did have a few episodes earlier in the evening and the previous evening where I felt tightening all across my stomach and wasn’t sure if baby was stretching or if it was a Braxton Hicks contraction.
I also experienced several stabbing pains down below yesterday, quite a few consecutively. Google tells me that this is my cervix beginning to dilate. Hopefully both of these things mean that baby will be here sooner rather than later.
I have actually gone out in jogging bottoms a few times this week, that is something that I never, ever do except on a rare occasion when I do some exercise. I am getting to the stage where comfort is coming before anything else.
My weight stayed the same in week 37, I have put on a total of 4lb so far.
My bump at 37 weeks (with a photobombing Bob of course) I can’t wait until we have a baby to use this Fisher Price swing* Fireplace looking pretty with baby shower and leaving cards.
There have been a lot of cat cwtches this week.
Mini Eggs and iced coffee to get me through the day Hubby made turkey burgers and sweet potato fries, we added the Philadelphia Duo Cremoso with garlic & fine herbs to the burger, oh my, amazing Dippy egg and soldiers are my latest addiction How cute is the little accidental heart in my Aero mousse? For a second I thought Spencer had been romantic and drawn it in as he bought the mousse over to me opened, he quickly corrected me that of course it wasn’t him!
